3. Consider a polycrystalline solid subjected to hydrostatic
pressure, p, that results in a dilation or volumetric strain given
∆V/Vo = ep.
The bulk modulus, K, is defined by the ratio p/ep. Using the generalized Hooke’s law, show that
K = E / (3 (1−2 ν)),
where E is the Young’s modulus and ν is the Poisson’s
